Until very recently, I took the same approach. But a post by Mr. Fuqua led me to the highly-inspirational website of Hal Galper, cryptically entitled www.HalGalper.com. Hal's comments literally opened my eyes to ways I could improve musically which involve audience interaction. (I'd been doing much of my playing with my eyes shut for years!) I ain't talkin' about James Taylor here. Like Ed, I love to play and I'm happy to play at home. But, I'm no longer completely oriented toward the "Audience Doesn't Matter At All" pole.
